There is a lot of great advice in here. I won't go over them all, but being passionate about what you're writing, keep on writing and publishing when sales drop, and why top profiled books prevail are right on from what I've experienced.
He uses his personal experience to back up what he's saying, which I also liked. Some other things that I think are useful are his tips on making a writing schedule, and I liked seeing his and how the numbers can add up fast for writing and publishing books. So if you're struggling with finishing books, I think you'll find his tips helpful.
Other topics covered in this book include why finding a niche is important, limiting your marketing time so you have more time to write, and the importance of shelf space.
Anyway, from my experience what he says in this book is accurate, so I do suggest taking the time to read it.
